Caix British Cemetery

Historical Information (Source: CWGC)

Caix was occupied by Commonwealth troops in March 1917, lost during the German advance in March 1918, and recaptured on 8 August 1918 by the Canadian Corps. Caix British Cemetery (called at first Caix New British Cemetery) was made after the Armistice when graves (mainly of March and August 1918) were brought in from the battlefields and from smaller cemeteries.

 

The cemetery now contains 373 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 73 of them unidentified. The cemetery was designed by Sir Herbert Baker.
